Beth Ricca Leaves CMC
December 22, 2009

Beth Ricca, Associate Director of Career Services and Director of Internships, has left Claremont McKenna. Rumors about Ricca's desire to leave CMC have long circulated campus and Diana Seder, Director of Career Services, confirmed that Ricca has "has accepted a position with the Ramapo School in New Jersey" after " looking to move back to her home state for some time." Career Services is currently searching for a replacement and has hired on an interim Assistant Director, Jason Jeffrey, to fill her position. Jeffrey, who will take over the sponsored internship program, starts at CMC on January 11.
After Dean Huang's interview with (and ultimate decision to decline an offer from) Amherst earlier this semester, not to mention his replacement as Dean of Students by Mary Spellman, Beth Ricca's departure rounds out something of a tumultuous semester for the administration.
